Minutes of the December 17, 2009 Meeting

Stephanie Bartz (chair & recorder), Natalie Borisovets, Theo Haynes, Li Sun, Bob Warwick
Ellen Calhoun, Sara Harrington

1. Symphony 3.3.1 upgrade

The Symphony upgrade on January 1 will be to version 3.3.1 instead of 3.3.0. This latest release was installed in the test system on December 16 and is largely patches and bug fixes. IRIS images (e.g., buttons and banner) are missing in the test system now that it’s been upgraded, but this is likely a problem with changes to directory names or file permissions and should be easy to fix. Bob will investigate.

Several enhancements to the e-library module are included in 3.3.1 including:

2. “This just in…’ feedback

A comment was received regarding the fact that the “Library Science and Bibliography” subsection includes a variety of topics besides library science. All of the bibliographies that have Z call numbers are included there. There was discussion over whether it would be possible to sort out the Z call numbers so that they fall into their actual subjects instead of the catchall “Bibliographies” category. Although the idea has merit, it may require too much work for a small return considering the small number of items that would have been affected in the October and November 2009 lists. IPAC may look at this further as time permits.

3. IRIS feedback

4. Open Source public catalog interfaces

5. Information Sharing

6. Next meeting

January 21, 1:30 p.m., University Librarian’s Conference Room
